    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    I've noticed that my scale seems to get stuck about 2-3 lbs up every now and then, too. As do you, I usually know why and what I've done, or not done, to bring it up. I usually bring it back down by watching any food that may have a high sodium content, make sure I get to the gym or get some cardio during that and the next day, and drink an extra glass of watrer or two. I stay with my normal food intake, though, which for me is 1400 cal. I'm just more careful as to what makes up my daily calories the next couple of days. I hope that this was somewhat helpful. Good luck.
